Aryan Garg

For the summer of '24, I'm interning at the Computational Behaviour Lab directed by Prof. Antti Oulasvirta at Aalto University. I'm fortunate to have close support from Dr. Yue Jiang and Aini Putkonen.

Last, I was a Bosch AI Research Fellow at the Computational Imaging Lab directed by Prof. Kaushik Mitra at the Indian Institute of Technology, Madras. In a past life, I finished my Bachelor's in Computer Science at IIT Mandi, where I was advised by Prof. Renu Rameshan. During my junior year, I had the privilege of being advised by Prof. Jean-François Lalonde and Dr. Yannick Hold-Geoffroy while spending a MITACS summer at Université Laval in the beautiful Quebec City.

Apart from research and academic services, I enjoy reading 📚, traveling ✈️, competing in endurance sports 🚴‍♂️, and trekking 🏔️. My previous trek (8th) was Sandakphu-Phalut in the Himalayas overlooking the majestic sleeping Buddha.

Research Interests

My main focus is on deep generative modeling and 3D scene reconstruction. Outside of that, I also enjoy going on side quests 🗡️ to push the boundaries of core machine learning.

Parameter and Data Efficient Spectral Style DCGAN
Aryan Garg
ICLR Tiny Paper,2024   Oral Presentation   🇦🇹
GitHub / arXiv / OpenReview

Unconditional face generation at the speed and size of DCGAN using a relatively tiny training dataset (~4000). Convergence and higher fidelity over StyleGAN are achieved using a spectrally normalized discriminator and a tiny generator within 20 minutes on a commercial, free cloud GPU.
